startx will get you into the default GUI (probably KDE)

You can also:
startx /usr/bin/startkde
startx /usr/bin/startgnome

You will have to change your inittab file from a root console it's probably set to 3 you'll want to change it to 5:

Open Konsole from KDE type:

$ su <enter>
PW etc...

# emacs /etc/inittab

--SAMPLE--
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by Mandrakelinux are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#
id:3:initdefault: <====[Change this to 5]

# System initialization.
si::sysinit:/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit


Save file and reboot

Is there an error which causes the Display Manager to not start? Assuming you're using Mandriva, you would be using the Mandrake Display Manager -- is that installed properly? Is there an error in the startup of this Display manager which causes the computer to start in command prompt mode?

Please post any error messages, and the output of 'dmesg.'

Hopefully this will be just an xorg.conf problem.
